It’s Stan Lee’s swansong as scripter… and the issue where he introduces the world to: The Mimic!  Now, you might be asking why the X-Men need their own version of the Super-Skrull… and, well, yeah… that’s basically what he is, just in a gaudier costume!  I suppose we can just chalk it up to “It’s the Silver Age” and move on.

Plus: All of the 1966 Marvel Backmatter you could possibly ever want… and probably some ya don’t!
